The Conference objectives are to gain knowledge on the way
successful organisations are implementing their CMDB/CMS (Configuration
Management Database / Configuration Management System) and understand
the benefits that can be achieved. The Conference will bring managers
and practitioners working across the service lifecycle (which
incorporates the application lifecycle) together in an open forum.
Presentations by world leaders in this field, practitioners and
vendors will encourage the sharing and cross
fertilisation of ideas between practitioners, vendors and users of the CMDB/CMS solutions and tools.
The Conference will contain interactive workshops using decision
support tools that guarantee dynamic interaction, rich brainstorming and
better discussion between users, practitioners and the vendor community.
The knowledge gained from the workshops will create a shared
understanding of today’s challenges, industry and vendor strategies to
cope with these challenges and future needs.
